Study of Alex
Taking three days to complete this study was quite delicate work initially but my hand freed up.

Medium: Charcoal stick
Size: 297 x 420 mm 
Restacks in on A1 sized paper and was very delicate work and is very fine with miniature strokes layering up.

It was the vulnerability seen in my muse I sought to capture and I'm happy to bring you this but may still try and improve the quality of the image.
Subcity is a piece I drew with a life model in front of me in 2013 - 3 years ago.
Finally I plucked up the courage to spend a little more time on the piece and with the eyes of a friend can assert it's completed.

I would love to thank the muse and hope he see's and recognises the completed piece. 

Medium: Charcoal
Dimensions: ~56 x 33 cms

Apologies the paper got a bit beat up in the 3 years.

Your thoughts and the view attained from your perspective is always appreciated.

Sincerely, Laurence
Hello, with Anvil I have found a familiar method to get back in touch with drawing.

You may notice it's on the reverse of a used Jiffy bag. This canvas helps my frame of mind. I lose fear of making a mistake or failure.
I intend to find the correct recipient for this piece of work and send it via regular post, with the image exposed because it aids me complete the process of someone else receiving my Art and also it lessens the preciousness I play in pieces. I can let go.

My journey with art started as a child, going through to my teens with Pottery classes. It consisted less of wheel work but more so free play and within the small group it felt very much like I was adventuring. In 1996 aged twelve I acquired a traumatic brain injury which still impacts me greatly. The focus in recovery was very much learning to use every muscle in my body and communication - initially without speech. I had to learn to solely use my non dominant hand and arm.

Art was farthest from my mind in my mid twenties when I attended an art group. I needed interaction and to get out of the house. Owing I believe to the precision and concentration involved in merely holding a pencil and then marking paper my art quickly progressed and it became "stylised" by my difficulty presented from the quickly fatigued control of my hand and arm. For example creating obstacles to drawing solid lines.

I am untrained, and uncertain of what I intend when I start the process but I will find beauty, or gain intrigue with all my muses. An expression, a pose, an aura! I find beauty in life and people fascinate me. Everyone has a beauty and I love it if I can capture an emotion or wonderful thought.
